Gate of Babylon

Gate of Babylon refers to a golden key that connects to the treasury of series antagonist Gilgamesh which contains every known noble phantasm from across the world. When activated, Gilgamesh is able to summon these weapons from his treasury through a dimensional gate which he then use as projectiles during battle. This ability has become the subject of fanart by fans with variations that replaces Gilgamesh and his weapons with characters and objects from various other media.

Wow. When I was in high school this guy I knew had to write a 2000 word essay on the history of war. He turned it 2 Xeroxed photos from his history book with a note saying, “Because a picture is worth a thousand words, I included two.” Failed the assignment, but the teacher was impressed.

August 4th, 2006 at 12:12 am

LOL! A++ work I tell you.

That’s balls right there folks! Frickin’ awesome!

FAKE. FAKKE. As is the response from typical picture sites. But this is damn cool, I’ll try something in school. Under someone else’s name of course.

Hell. He got stickied in /a/.

Legendary stickied thread 4TW!

you make my friday DM 😀

August 4th, 2006 at 10:48 am

Hmm…. I guess this wasn’t for Engrish 101, eh?

But seriously, how cool would it be to come up with any essay imagined? Would have saved me several all-nighters of grief if I could just easily come up with one. And maybe give the damn professor an unlimited death by paper cuts.

omg, i laughed for a minute when i read this.. awesome stuff

definitely deserved a prize for special talents!

I saw the post he made the night before about (not) writing the essay. The responses were pretty helpful – for 4chan of course. Of course, this event spawned many spoof images, including the birth of the memes “See you in fall semester, Mike” and “Did you mean ‘bane’?” (in caps, lol).

To quote the words of Nekketsu, “Awesomeness!”

Man I salute that guy’s stupidity bravery to ever submit an essay like that. Props to him!

A D+ score? wtf? Tell Mike to call his teacher to the backyard and once there, to summon Unlimited Essay Works and send him to hell.

Don’t EVER look down on Unlimited * Works.

Unlimited Blade Works

Part of a series on Fate (Type-Moon). [View Related Entries]

Editor’s Note: This entry contain spoilers to Fate/stay night.

Unlimited Blade Works refers to the noble phantasm of the character Archer and Shirou Emiya in the Type-Moon Fate series. Since its introduction in 2004, the ability became popular among fans, spawning parodies and a copypasta based on the noble phantasm’s incantation.

Unlimited Blade Works was first introduced in the 2004 visual novel game Fate/stay night, specifically in one of the game’s story routes under the same name as the noble phantasm. The noble phantasm is a reality marble that acts as a magical factory for creating replicas of various weapons including other noble phantasms. To summon the reality marble, Archer must use an incantation to facilitate the invocation. The incantation reads:

“I am the Bone of my Sword

Steel is my Body and Fire is my Blood.

I have created over a Thousand Blades,

Unknown to Death,

Nor known to Life.

Have withstood Pain to create many Weapons

Yet those Hands will never hold Anything.

Shirou Emiya has an alternate version of the incantation which he uses to summon the reality marble. The incantation is as follows:

“I am the Bone of my Sword

Steel is my Body and Fire is my Blood

I have created over a Thousand Blades

Unaware of Loss,

Nor aware of Gain.

Withstood Pain to create Weapons, Waiting for one’s Arrival

I have no Regrets. This is the only Path

My whole life was Unlimited Blade Works

Discussions regarding Unlimited Blade Works began as early as 2006 with posts appearing on a number of sites such as reddit, [1] Tumblr, [2] 4chan, [3] Gamefaqs, [4] TVTropes, [5] and Zetaboards. [6] On December 8th, 2008, Urban Dictionary user Arblast submitted an entry regarding the noble phantasm. [7]

On July 31st, 2013, Youtube user ExiaFr posted a video showcasing Archer using Unlimited Blade Works which was taken from the 2010 Movie adaptation of Fate/stay night (shown below, left). Within 2 years, the video gathered over 276.000 views. On May 10th, 2015, Youtube user TheSzadow posted a video comparing Archer’s Unlimited Blade Works ability between the 2006 and the 2014 anime adaptation of Fate/stay night (shown below, right). Within a year, the video gathered over 199.000 views.

Unlimited Essay Works

Unlimited Essay Works refers to a notorious 4chan post that was submitted by a user known as “Mike”. The post shows an essay which was written in the same manner as the copypasta which resulted in the user getting a D+ and ultimately failing his semester.

The original thread was posted on 2nd August, 2006, on 4chan’s /a/ board. In the thread, the original poster delivered a promise he made in a previous topic to turn in his final exam in the form of the Unlimited Blade Works copypasta (shown below). [13]

The thread gained traction among users and was subsequently stickied by a mod. [11] The image of the essay gained popularity on a number of sites such as Funny Exams, [9] Dark Mirage, [8] and FunnyJunk. [14] The thread also spawned a number of edits that pokes fun at the event(shown below).

Various Examples

Copypastas

I am the slam of my jam.

Slam is my body, and jam is my blood.

I have slammed over a thousand jams.

Unknown to slam.

Nor known to jam.

Withstood DMCA takedown notices to slam many jams.

Yet these slams will never jam anything.

I AM THE LINK OF MY SERVER

IMVU IS MY BODY , AND RIGHTING WRITING IS MY BLOOD

I HAVE CREATED OVER A THOUSAND ADS

UNKNOWN TO WIN , NOR KNOWN TO LOSE

HAVE WITHSTOOD FEMALE NARUTO TO CREATE MANY QUIZNO’S SUBS

YET THOSE DOUBLE – CLICKS WILL NEVER HOLD ANYTHING

SO, AS I PAY BILLS

I am the bone of my cake

Steel is my landing, and adrenaline is my blood

I have created over a thousand gates

Unknown to incineration, nor known outside apeture

I have withstood pain to solve many puzzles

Yet those hands will never hold another cube

I am the meme of my sword

Never Gonna Let You Down is my body, and Never Gonna Run Around is my blood

I have created over a thousand Internet pranks

Unknown to Never Gonna Make You Cry, nor to any other guy

Have withstood strangers to love to create many 80s hits

Yet those obvious links will never fool anyone

Memes / Nasuverse

Edit Locked

Please add entries in the following format:

  • The meme. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[[/labelnote]] Explanation Like this.
    • Further mutations and successor memes, if any.

Fate series (except Fate/Grand Order)

  • Most, but not all, of the following memes are listed on the Type-Moon page on Know Your Meme, and several have individual pages to themselves.
  • “People dieif they are killed.” Explanation From a fansub’s “Blind Idiot” Translation taken out of context.
    • Up until that point in the Fate route, Shirou had survived at least half a dozen near death experiences (including being disemboweled, stabbed through the heart, and cut clean through from shoulder to hip) through a magical Healing Factor. However, Shirou then gives up that power so Saber can use it to stand a chance against Gilgamesh . Thus, Shirou is just restating he’s fine giving the power up, as he’s already more than grateful for surviving more near death experiences than a person would normally ever expect to. People still make fun of Shirou and the “Blind Idiot” Translation though.
    • Shiki Tohno: “Don’t be ridiculous! Dead people can’t be alive!”
    • Nanako note from the Tsukihime quasi-sequel Kagetsu Tohya : “Eh—Th-th-that’s ridiculous! First of all, that person doesn’t even die when killed!”
    • Rin Tohsaka: “She wouldn’t die even if you kill her.”
    • Playable Caster: “All right! Now that this is all settled, we WILL survive until the end, even if it kills me!”
    • Kamina: “A real man never dies, even when he’s killed!”
    • Renji Abarai: “Even if we kill you, you probably wouldn’t die.”
    • L: “The thing you have to do, is die before getting killed.”(Ironically this phase actually makes much more sense given the premises of Death Note)
    • Asuna Kagurazaka: “I’ve been always worried about when he would get injured, of if he would get killed. But now he won’t die even if “he” is killed.”
    • Nice: “I’ll kill you if you die again!”
    • Tadakuni’s sister: “Shut up! If you don’t die right now, I’ll kill you! If you don’t wanna get killed, then die!”
    • Hibiki Tachibana: “Then I’ll come back alive, even if it kills me!”
    • Maki Harukawa: “He’s stupid enough to get himself killed, but I know he won’t really die
    • Case in Point.
  • “Just because you’re correct doesn’t mean you’re right.” Explanation More oddly-translated wisdom from Shirou, this time from the official sub of the Unlimited Blade Works anime. In context, he meant something along the lines of “just because you’ve got your facts correct doesn’t mean your conclusions are right”.
  • “The Archer class really is made up of Archers!” Explanation Another “lost in translation” moment, courtesy of Rin this time. It’s a peculiarity of the Japanese language that using pronouns can be very casual and/or rude whereas using a person’s name even when directly speaking to them is common. She calls Archer by his “name,” but what she’s saying is, “You really are an Archer!”
    • This evolved into a sarcastic meme in Fate/Grand Order regarding the Archer class which has only few actual archers. The sarcasm gets further upon the inclusion of Kara no Kyoukai’s Asagami Fujino as an Archer-class Servant, yet she doesn’t have anything in her to be an Archer (as she doesn’t have a bow or any ranged weapons but has her telekinetic ability as her main method of attack instead), and some believes she fits more as Caster or Avenger instead.
  • “When you have a birthday, you celebrate being born.” Explanation Even Shirou’s counterpart in the Prisma Illya universe is not immune to making these statements, though he’s explaining this to Miyu, who never celebrated her birthday.
  • GAY BULGE! Explanation The first anime’s dub mispronounced “Gae Bolg”, the name of Lancer’s Noble Phantasm. Naturally, the Internet had a field day with this.
    • Here is a fan comic depiction, and here is a Gag Sub depiction.
  • “Alright, Shirou! Please put your. that! Y. Your pOnOs! To my. my. Here! . My vagOOO. And J.. J. JAM IT IN!” Explanation A series of Fate/stay night parody comics makes it a Running Gag that Shirou frequently suffers Entendre Failure when faced with sexual innuendo, and one doujinshi in particular portrays him as ignorant of even basic understanding of the mechanics of sex, requiring this line from Saber. The O‘s in the words “penis” and “vagina” are supposed to be circles representing blank-space censorship.
    • “. you lost me.” Explanation A fancomic by Hiroyuki , created as a parody/response to the above, has Shirou say this line in response to Rin and Saber trying to teach him how to perform the act.

      I am the bone of my sword .

      Steel is my body , and fire is my blood .

      I have created over a thousand blades .

      Unknown to Death , nor known to Life .

      Have withstood pain to create many weapons .

      Yet, those hands will never hold anything .

      So, as I pray , Unlimited Blade Works.

    • Fill-in-the-blank Shirou version: Expand

      I am the bone of my sword .

      Steel is my body , and fire is my blood .

      I have created over a thousand blades .

      Unaware of loss , nor aware of gain .

      Withstood pain to create weapons , waiting for one’s arrival .

      I have no regrets . This is my only path .

      My whole life was Unlimited Blade Works.

    • Unlimited Essay Works. Explanation An anon claimed that he turned in a page for his final paper of a writing class he was flunking using an altered UBW chant.
      • Did you mean “Bane”?
      • Fall/Semester Mike.
  • “I ask of you: Are you my Master?” Explanation This is mainly the first line EVERY servant states when they are summoned in ALL Fate series. Most notable during Saber’s summoning in Fate/stay night and Fate/Zero.
  • “This is a war which mucks around with women and children!” Explanation In the Fifth Fuyuki Holy Grail War, there are six children Masters and three female Servants; it is severely invoked by Gilgamesh.
  • Erotical Black Hole. Explanation Popular nickname for Sakura in Heaven’s Feel due to her seemingly endless sexual appetite combined with the Great Grail’s resemblance to a black hole.
  • Being Lancer is suffering. Explanation The Lancer class has “E-Rank”Luck Stat, and this presents itself story-wise as them being horribly shafted. Borrows from Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Surprisingly enough, more than half of the Servants that appear in the Nasuverse have the same rank in Luck, with only a few exceptions like Arturia Pendragon or Alexander the Great.
    • By the end of Fate/Zero, it’s become “Being everyone in Fate/zero is suffering.” Because there’s not a good end for ANYONE.Except Gilgamesh. (Unsurprisingly, both Fate/zero and Puella Magi Madoka Magica have the same writer, Gen Urobuchi).
    • Being Lancer is wonderful. Explanation As of Fate/Apocrypha’s release, this has taken a complete 180, since both of its Lancers, Vlad the Impaler and Karna, are respectively the strongest member of Black Team and one of the single most overpowered characters in the entire franchise, theorized to be able to take on GILGAMESH. Lancer of Black ends up like every other lancer, though.
  • DR. GILGAMESH . Explanation Gilgamesh’s infamous “heart surgery” scene in UBW triggered a lot of “heart”-related jokes.
  • KING OF HEROES, DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH SWORDS? Explanation A paraphrased/liberally translated version of Shirou’s line in the Unlimited Blade Works route when facing off against Gilgamesh.
    • Mongrels! Those swords are fucking patented! Explanation A flanderization of Gilgamesh’s interaction with Shirou and Archer. Brought up in the Character Development Cliff Notes style of the Unlimited Blade Works route.
    • Ha! Know your place, mongrel! Explanation Gilgamesh has a habit of referring to everyone else as “zasshu”, which is usually translated as “mongrel” in English.
  • Rejoice, Emiya Shirou /Yorokobe, shounen! Explanation Kirei Kotomine’s line towards Shirou at the start of Fate/stay night has turned into a memetic Catch-Phrase for the priest.
    • With the advent of Fate/Grand Order, this meme evolved to something akin to Naka-chan drops everywhere, due to Black Keys Craft Essence dropping pretty much in every 10-roll quartz gacha.
  • Kirei’s jogging in Fate/Zero’s eighth episode has reached a memetic status among the fandom.
  • WAGA ARU G. Explanation Lancer consistently refers to Kayneth with “waga aruji“, or “milord”.
  • Team NTR. Explanation A Fan Nickname for team Kayneth, referring to how Sola-ui falls in love with Lancer. Said Lancer being Diarmuid Ua Duibhne, who’s entire legend is also NTR, shouldn’t have come as a surprise.
  • KFCa.k.a.Kayneth’s Fried Circuits . Explanation Kayneth was hit by a bullet of Kiritsugu’s Mystic Code, shorting his Magic Circuits and – if he uses too much magic – raising the possibility of blowing out his body with overloaded prana. Too bad he had been doing exactly that.
    • This was followed up when someone photoshopped Kayneth’s face onto the KFC logo .
      • . which in turn was followed by an actual KFC employee, with Lancer’s face shopped over his own, posing with red and yellow brooms/mops in each hand representing Diarmuid’s dual spears .
    • On a related note, there is the fandom’s other nickname for Kayneth: Fast Wheels .
  • MOU IKKAI! Explanation A cute little endlessly repeating animation featuring the song Sakuranbo, with the lyrics “mou ikkai”/”one more time”.
  • Yuetsu!! Explanation The Japanese word for “pleasure”, alternatively translated as “joy” or “entertainment”; one of the plotlines involves Gilgamesh making Kirei realize what exactly the source of these things is for him. It’s probably a result of the frequent use and the Ho Yay that comes with it that made it into a memetic word among the fandom.
  • Ancient Hindu Spaceships! Explanation Mutated form of the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series Ancient Egyptian Laser Beams meme when referring to Gilgamesh’s flying ship in Fate/Zero. Yes, it’s at least grounded in true myth in the Ramayana.
  • Happy Mother/Father/Children’s Day, Kiritsugu! Explanation Fate/Zero had episodes that aired on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Japan’s Children’s Day. In said episodes, Kiritsugu is forced to kill his adoptive mother, (Grail-created versions of) his family, and his childhood friend, respectively.
  • UNLIMITED BUDGET WORKS Explanation With Ufotable adapting the full-length UBW anime and piggybacking off of the immense financial success of Fate/Zero, the animation in UBW was set to be very, very well funded.
    • HEAVEN’S FUND or alternately, HEAVEN’S BUDGET Explanation With Ufotable also adapting the Heaven’s Feel movie trilogy and taking into account the studio’s reputation for high quality animation plus the budget they’ve earned from the UBW anime itself, people have been dead set on calling the adaptation of the third route this. Now that the first movie’s out, fans everywhere all agree that Ufotable outdid themselves with the animation this time, with them even going so far as to say that it managed to surpass UBW’s animation in quality.
  • Historical Accuracy Explanation Due to the very system of the Grail calling upon copies of the heroes of all times to fight, many have some characteristics distinct to their mythical or historical depiction. Though plausible with some characters of the original VN, other entries in the franchise took it to its logical conclusion.
  • (Insert violent sequence here): (IT’S) MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES! Explanation It’s a reference to both one of the Philippines’ old tourism slogans, and the revelation that Alimango Island, where Kiritsugu’s Start of Darkness took place, is an actual location from that country. Needless to say, a number of Filipinos couldn’t resist.
  • HIGH BAR Explanation Rin and Sakura first fall in love with Shirou by watching him try to vault over a bar from the wrong side, not giving up despite trying and failing for hours. It’s thus become common to have girls fall madly in love with him in crossovers or any other form of fiction just by jumping over a bar. It has been done before, though.
  • DON’T THINK!IMAGINE! Explanation Illya sums up how magical girl powers work. Often used by fans as a Hand Wave concerning any breaks in logic.
    • IMASINE! Explanation The original airing of the episode misspelled “Imagine”. The DVD release fixed this, but not before the Internet ran off with it.
  • Tohsaka’s anus. Explanation A. particularly memorable line from the H-scene in the Unlimited Blade Works route, seen here, along with a selection of other narmtastic Nasu quotes (NSFW). This line is one of the several usually trotted out to support “Nasu can’t write sex” as seen above.
  • TOHSAKA PLEASES OLD MEN FOR MONEY! Explanation Originating from a Doujinshi where Rin does just that, this phrase is posted in almost every Fate thread on /a/.
  • 2017: The Year of Fate. Explanation With the announcement of the first Heaven’s Feel movie, Part II of the Fate/Grand Order mobile game as well as it’s US release, Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, anime adaptations of Grand Order, Fate/EXTRA and Fate/Apocrypha, and an anime movie for Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA all being released at different points in 2017, fans have proclaimed that 2017 is a great time to be a Fate fan.
  • Mama Shirou. Explanation This line inevitably gets used in some form in any fanwork where Mordred ends up meeting her “father” Artoria and Shirou when the latter two are together. It really ups in hilarity when one remembers that Shirou pretty much is the “wife” in the relationship with his skills at cooking and housework.
    • MamaMIYA. Explanation An extension of “Mama Shirou” to Shirou’s future counterpart, Archer EMIYA. Frequently seen mothering all the Servants in Grand Order fanworks, including ones he normally hates.
    • Queen Shirou. Explanation Taking the idea of Artoria and Shirou being together to its logical conclusion, since Artoria is the King of Britain, the other Knights of the Round Table often refer to Shirou as the new “queen”.
  • “Hey, that’s Hell you are walking into.” Explanation A phrase uttered by both Shirou and Archer while the former remembers that his wish to save others was his from the start in Episode 20 of Unlimited Blade Works. Normally used whenever someone discusses heroics or ideals (or Fate/Grand Order and its gatcha and grindiness).

Fate/Grand Order

  • Sasaki Kojiro, Savior of France Explanation The fact that Sasaki is one of the two best cards for the French part of the game (said map is infested with Rider-class dragons, which Assassin-class Servants do extra damage against) has led to its reputation in the Fate/Grand Order fandom as the Savior of France.
    • [X] is just a bigger swallow. Explanation Kojirou’s Noble Phantasm refers to cutting down a swallow mid-flight. Replace X with anything from the aforementioned dragons to end-game bosses.
    • REGEND Explanation Sasaki Kojiro’s interlude was named this before they corrected the spelling. After he’s defeated and seemingly killed during the Moon Festival event, one of the choices for the PC to say is “LEGEND OF SAMURAI” in Japanese. Nasu was having a blast while writing this.
  • The Cu Chu train. Explanation A team in Grand Order using only Cu Chulainn in various forms, as he has four separate and very popular summonable versions.
  • David is a shitty parent. Explanation After the revelation of Solomon being in control of the Ars Goetia demons the protagonist has fought thus far, these kinds of jokes have been quick to surface about how Solomon’s aim to doom the future spawns from David being a bad parent. Even The Reveal that it’s not the real Solomon but the demons themselves controlling his corpse and the real one is actually very much a Nice Guy still doesn’t stop the jokes from coming.
  • Rin and Shirou’s children. Explanation Given that the design of the male and female protagonist was based on a genderflip of Rin Tohsaka and Shirou Emiya respectively, the fandom quickly made jokes of the protagonist being the child of the latters, or children if both the male and female protagonist are present. This was partially due to the game being released after the end of the Unlimited Blade Works anime -in which Shirou and Rin are romantically involved- and also due to Rin’s route being the only one where Shirou could have any potential children.
  • Black Keys Explanation The way Grand Order‘s gacha is set up, most of the time you will be pulling out Craft Essences instead of actual Servants, Black Keys being one of the most common and least useful.
    • Saber Gilles Explanation The Servant equivalent to Black Keys, as he isn’t considered very good or useful.
  • Unlimited Maintenance Works Explanation Grand Order had a rocky start to say the least; during the first five day after its release, the game was only online for HALF of that time.
    • 48 hours Explanation The longest period of maintenence so far, which has become rather infamous
    • “So, what happens when the maintenance is over?” Explanation A comic featuring Cobra talking about the end of server maintenance. Has since mutated with Chloe and the female protagonist saying the same thing. “You don’t know? That’s when maintenance begins.”
  • Fate/Hunger Games Simulator Explanation One of the pass-time activities that players engage in while waiting for the game to go online again , which naturally has led to its own share of memes:
    • Emiya picks flowers
    • Father of the year
  • Spook! Explanation In the 10-pull mechanic in the gacha, one of the cards will be guaranteed a 4* and above. But they didn’t specify if it is a Servant or a CE, so when rolling for featured Servants during rate-ups, getting a 4* or 5* Servant when the orbs turn gold or rainbow only to find out that it wasn’t the Servant you wanted is called getting spooked in Reddit, since it usually means that you pretty much lost your chances of getting the featured 5* Servant and wasted your quartz. Bonus points if they still got the 5* Servant in a later card after the 4* Servant was obtained in the same 10-pull.
    • Don’t spook me Kirei Explanation The standard prayer/good luck chant before drawing cards from the gacha.
  • Unlimited Reroll/Waifu/Husbando/Jeanne Works Explanation A common practice among Grand Order players is that restart (reroll) the game in order to get the Servant you want, Jeanne in particular being VERY sought after thanks to her fantastic stats.
  • EX/C/E Rank Luck. Explanation Due to the random nature of rolling for Servants and low drop rates for valuable items, players cite the Luck stat from Servant character sheets. EX is great, C is decent, E is terrible.
  • Protect their smile Explanation An old 4chan meme, used in this context when a Servant reaches their final ascension, due to the happy expressions that they (usually) give upon reaching their final stages. Usually accompanied with a screenshot of said final ascension and happy expression.
  • X is good civilization. Y is bad civilization . Explanation Attila wishes to destroy all civilization except for dango after eating some during the Mid-Autumn event, declaring it to be good civilization.
  • “Fuck off Reddit.” Explanation Someone on 4chan datamined the gacha used for the guaranteed 5 star servant and pasted a slightly transparent sign saying “Fuck Off Reddit” on it because of a perception that a reddit poster was claimed the anon’s datamine. Said reddit poster took the bait and posted the datamine as it is and appropriately made fun of. Japanese posters, who are also looking info in 4chan, found it and started typing the letters out in English without understanding what they were and wondering if the gatcha was real or not. After that, every leaked pictures of new events/Servants have this label.
  • Saber Lily’s crotch blasting Noble Phantasm. Explanation Her animation for Caliburn targets the enemy’s crotch.
  • One Buster Man Explanation Due to the fact that, in early content and events, sufficiently leveled Berserkers can take out pretty much any enemy in one Brave Chain (if not one Buster attack), fanart would compare them to Saitama and his infamous One-Hit Kill punch. Unfortunately, this died off some time after later content started introducing enemies that wouldn’t go down with one chain from a Berserker, relegating the class to a collective Crutch Character.
  • OMAE JA NAI!! Explanation For Saber Wars, when the rate-up summon are the popular and very strong units, Saber Alter and Nero, players instead get a gold Saber card that turns into Siegfried. This then combined with Siegfried’s own memetic sumanai.
  • Fionn, you’ve changed. Explanation Fionn’s design in Grand Order is radically different to the one he had in Fate/Zero, which lead to a lot of jokes from confused fans who didn’t get the reference to a legend that was fairly obscure outside of its native Ireland.
  • Super High School Level Heroic Spirits. Explanation: Edmond Dantes was revealed to be drawn by Dangan Ronpa‘s main artist Rui Komatsuzaki, sporting a design that bore an eerie resemblance to Nagito Komaeda. Many fans ended up wondering what Komaeda was doing in a Fate series, to which Nasu himself responded : “Were you expecting a mere Cavern King? Too bad! He was a Super High School-tier Heroic Spirit instead!” When Komatsuzaki was called upon again to draw Cleopatra, fans started drawing the pair participating in a Chaldea Killing Game.
  • I’ve become a mom. Explanation The reaction of many players after summoning Jack from the gacha. This is because Jack calls her master (or anyone that nice to her), no matter what gender, as “mommy”.
  • ISKANDER WHEN? Explanation A common reaction from some players every time a new batch of Servants is released and Iskander wasn’t on the list. The Fate/Zero collab cashed in all the hype that people had for him. To make it worse, he’s the only limited Servant of the event.
    • The meme then transformed into SEMIRAMIS WHEN? Or ACHILLES WHEN? Explanation They’re the fan-favorite Apocrypha characters currently unavailable in the game. Achilles has been expected for a long time as he makes a non-playable cameo in Alexander’s interlude and his two rivals (Hector and Penthesilea) are already in the game. With Semiramis, it’s become a common joke that she’ll appear after an Amakusa gacha, a reference to her love for him. Or alternatively for both, when Apocrypha ends airing in Japan and receives a collab event. Semiramis’ version is now a Discredited Meme when she became the focus for Valentine 2018 Or BERSERK ATALANTE/ATALANTE ALTER WHEN? Explanation After the airing of Episodes 21 and 22 of Apocrypha, the demand for an ‘alternate’ Atalante after using her other Noble Phantasm, Agrius Metamorphosis, gets a rise.
  • FGO chibis. Explanation A lot of people are very fond of posting Servant chibis in the style of Learn With Manga! while posting in imageboards. The April Fools event just made the chibis even more popular, since now, there’s official chibis for everyone.
  • Wait, and hope. Explanation This quote from Edmond Dantes is always used whenever discussing rolls and future events/Servants. Dantes’ VA (Nobunaga Shimazaki) posted a tweet of his NP 5 Dantes with the caption “Roll, and hope”, spreading the meme further.
  • Angra Mainyu. Explanation This loved, ultimate Joke Character was secretly added to the Friend Point gacha during Fate/Accel Zero Order resulting in almost all players trying to roll him and was jokingly suspected as the reason of lots and lots of server lag and a record five maintenances for the game. And to rub salt in the wound, it’s possible that his roll rate is even smaller then any of the SSR Servants’ roll rate. All the Evils of the World indeed.
  • Drawings of Helena. Explanation One chapter of Learn More With Manga! FGO has the protagonist commissioning Leonardo Da Vinci for a drawing of Helena Blavatsky under very strict (and suggestive) specifications, much to Da Vinci’s chagrin. Since then, this has become a minor meme, and lots of players (along with some of the game’s artists, including her character designer Matsuryuu) actually drew Helena under said specifications.
  • The Lancer Curse. Explanation There are staggeringly high amount of players without a golden-rarity Lancer due to the difficulty of acquiring them, since most of them are either limited exclusives or story-unlocked; to put this into perspective, there are currently at least six gold-rarity Sabers able to be summoned anytime. Some unfortunate players eventually started to jokingly attribute this to Lancer’s generally poor luck stat, though some players used this as an excuse to use the longtime fan-favorite Cu Chulainn. then jokingly blame their luck on him.
  • It’s a bait. Explanation Several times DW releases a “suspicious” gacha with fan-favorites or awesome Servants, making some players blow all their quartz on the gacha . and despairing afterwards when DW announces a new gacha/event with even more awesome Servants.
  • Another crossover meme with A Streetcar Named Desire: Arash’s Noble Phantasm Stella, the Lone Meteor.
    • Man With A Mission also has a song named “Stella”.
  • Mary’s reaction in the “Chaldea Summer” CM to the ball going her way first being a smile as she tries to hit it and then surprise as it gets too close and hits her in the face became an Image Macro for players’ disappointment in the game.
  • Noble Phantasms that involve Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs are often a nod to Jojos Bizarre Adventure, starting with Beowulf’s “ORA ORA ORA” (Jotaro), Xuanzang (with Saver as her Stand), and Saint Martha’s “ROAD ROLLA DA” (DIO, with Tarrasque as the Road Roller). Wouldn’t you know it, one battle in the Nero Festival 2016features the three of them together , also a nod to Streets of Rage.
  • DW hates dudes. Explanation With many of the 4* and 5* servants composed mostly of girls and that Medb’s exhibition round punishes you for using male servants, some people have come to this conclusion.
  • The outfit that Mash wears in the “Dangerous Beast” CE is often put on other characters, both male and female, by fan artists. Most of the art, especially the ones of female characters, tend to be very NSFW.
    • This has been a ongoing theme for Halloween. One of the exclusive CE’s for the Halloween event will feature artwork by the doujin circle ReDrop similar to the “Dangerous Beast” outfit note which was for 2016’s event . Prior to it, for 2015’s event, there was the “Halloween Princess” note which featured Irisviel Von Einzbern in a succubus guise . For 2017, there is “Trick or Treatment” note featuring Nightingale . They all tend to get popular around fan artists rather quickly.
  • Smile protected. Explanation Building off the wider “don’t you want to protect that smile?” meme that gained popularity with many anime fans, once Mash protects your smile with her Heroic Sacrifice and your heroics in turn inspire a certain character to defy reality and save her from death, you two share a moment outside Chaldea for the first time where she gives you a beaming smile. The threat is over for now and the smile has been, in fact, protected.
  • You need a catalyst to summon X. Explanation In Fate lore, you must provide some item that has a connection to your targeted Servant to summon them (i.e. Rin’s pendant for Archer EMIYA, Avalon for Altria, etc). So players have joked that if they provide a catalyst, they will be able to summon their targeted Servant. The items used can be anything like a manga/doujin/action figure of a certain Servant, going to their place (Chateau d’If in France for summoning Dantes) or even Servants themselves to summon someone they know (i.e. Hassans in a party for King Hassan).
    • Using mayonnaise to summon Hijikata. Explanation One of the most famous Hijikata depictions in Japan is Gintama‘s Hijikata Toshirou, a weirdo with an incredible fondness of mayonnaise. So when DW releases their own version of Hijikata as a limited Servant, this joke crops up a lot, especially if it’s actually successful.
    • Similarly, use an Eyecon to summon Musashi Explanation The TV series Kamen Rider Ghost has a collectable item which contains the soul of Musashi within the series (similar to the Class cards of Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA) which can be bought in real life. Thus, people have joked that the vessel of the soul of Musashi would be extremely effective in summoning her.
    • Alternatively, people have used this Explanation From the same TV Series, the main’s character’s soul was used to catalyse Musashi’s summoning, so people have reasoned that his catchphrase (which he repeats at the beginning of every episode) would also catalyse Musashi’s summoning in the game.
    • Using Touken Danshi to summon Nobunaga and Okita. Explanation With the popularity of Touken Ranbu and the common practice of depicting a sword with any series’ version of their masters, fans using Touken Danshi to summon their masters is a common sight. In this case, many use Heshikiri Hasebe to summon Nobunaga and Yamatonokami Yasusada to summon Okita.
  • Tristan in Extra (CCC). Explanation He’s the only bonus Servant for the event without any apparent connection with CCC. Cue confused reactions from Japanese players. Tristan even trended on twitter on the day the CCC event details were announced!
  • Berserker can’t be defeated — he’s the strongest man in the world! Explanation This line comes from Illya in the UBW route (“Basaka wa dare ni mo makenai — sekai tsuyoi ichiban da kara!”) and is typically quoted whenever a player has Heracles thoroughly trash powerful bosses like Goetia by himself. Demonstrated here.
  • Nasu’s still got it. Explanation This appears whenever story content written by Nasu concludes and fans are left very satisfied with the story, be it the emotional aspect, epicness, or jokes inside.
  • Altria. Explanation This interpretation of F/SN Saber’s real name was quickly laughed at when seen in promotion for the US version of the game and the game itself, due to it being what Google Translate spits out when fed the Japanese character for Saber’s name. Despite it being what Type-Moon apparently wanted, most people from the West prefer using Arturia or Artoria. Just try saying “Altria Alter” with a straight face.
  • MLG Marie. Explanation When one of Marie Antoinette’s story responses was translated to “Whassup, my homies?” players were quick to pile MLG memes onto her.
  • Frankie’s “Daddy”. Explanation During the “Dead Heat Race” summer event, Fran manages to co-operate with Archer of Shinjuku (of all people) by calling him “papa”. His response gave way to fanart of him fainting over the sight of Fran being cute.
  • Grail for Love. Explanation Given the limited rarity of Grail Rare Candy, much debate is on just who just gets grail ascended. While there are a few characters who are useful in a spreadsheet sense, the general accepted answer is that you grail the character you love to play.
  • Skip NP when? Explanation Some fans are just not into the Noble Phantasm animation sequence. It’s even acknowledged in Learning with Manga . When this issue was brought up to the developers in an interview , their response was basically Hahaha No. The closest we get to this feature is Bunyan’s NP that only has 2 seconds of animation.
  • ONORE ONORE ONORE ONORE!! Explanation Gilgamesh’s grunt of pain after something seriously painful (eg: a Noble Phantasm) is oft-quoted by many to curse at something that didn’t go their way.
  • Sitting EX Explanation Yagyu Munenori’s skill animation involves him kneeling, then getting up again. Because of his good skillset for burst damage, many have called his animation “Sitting EX”
  • Sumanai. Explanation Siegfried’s low Tier-Induced Scrappy status was pretty much legendary and not only the phrase is used to describe him, it’s also used as a way to ‘spook’ people who drew 4-5 star Sabers only to be revealed to be Siegfried. The Interlude buff, while not enough to make him a decent standalone Saber, actually made him at least servicable or showing combo potential with other Servants (some Servants like Fionn is usually considered on an even lower tier than him). But people have a hard time forgetting his sucky days that ‘Sumanai’ is still going to stick.
  • [X] Santa Lily. Explanation After the sheer adorableness that 2016’s Christmas event brought with the introduction of Jeanne Alter Santa Lily, many fans took it upon themselves to make Santa Lily versions of their favorite Servants in the hopes that the next year might make one of them real.
  • Genderbent Chaldea. Explanation The sheer amount of genderbent female Servants appearing in Chaldea had some fans wondering about an event where these Servants unexpectedly turn into their historical counterpart’s gender. While some versions have the Masters try to reverse the curse, others fully embrace the change and turn this new Chaldea into a BL or Otome-styled facility.
  • Swimsuit Nitocris. Explanation Nitocris’ Swimsuit Assassin alt has amassed a ridiculous amount of memes, thanks primarily to the Medjed disguise she puts on in her earlier levels. The meme lasted well into the Halloween season and beyond, with Nitocris still wearing it in order to use it as a makeshift ghost costume, or use it as a blanket in the winter, or just because she doesn’t feel like taking it off.
  • ONE RIDER GEM Explanation In celebration of the upcoming Winter Festival in 2017, a special log-in bonus courtesy of Ozymandias. in a form of a single Rider Gem. Needles to say, the utter randomness of it made the whole thing go viral.
  • Amazon.com CEO Explanation Penthesilea, Queen of Amazons, being an ‘Amazon CEO’ isn’t just her Fan Nickname, it also made her the target of Amazon.com spoofs, like being made to deliver Amazon products, or when said product is to instantly kill you.
  • It’s definitely Semiramis. Explanation Semiramis fans on Reddit who’ve been waiting for Semiramis’s availability in the FGO gacha have latched on to the idea that all the characters from the upcoming Cosmos in the Lostbelt chapter are her (even when they aren’t Servants and/or clearly not her ). Even after she becomes available as the featured Servant in the 2018 Valentine’s Day event, the meme lives on.
  • What’s Lusamine doing here? Explanation Brynhild’s similarity with Lusamine in both looks and love problems inevitably will make the uninitiated who saw Brynhild for the first time to mistake her as Lusamine’s lookalike or sister, if not outright nicknaming her as such
  • Part of Medusa’s reworked animations include her making her signature crouching pose during her Extra Attack. However, the positioning makes it so that when she’s not at the front of the party, she’ll be doing it right in front of party’s leader, most cases close to their crotch. It’s common to see various screenshots of this with multiple characters.
    • Sherlock Holmes’s Extra Attack animations include closely examining and hand-framing enemies. This is also exploitable .
  • Stheno the Useless Goddess Explanation Usually Medusa is the Gorgon Sister that got ridiculed and bullied by being called ‘useless’ or sorts. Not in the player’s case, since both Medusa and Gorgon range from decent to very useful, while Euryale is very useful, and Stheno. is a low-end Tier-Induced Scrappy, so she’s the one being labelled as ‘useless goddess’ in the player’s eyes
  • Who’s this Servant you speak of? I only see Mana/Rare Prism. Explanation Some people disliked a Servant (either genuinely or because they’re useless or not very useful in-game) that they refuse to acknowledge that Servant as a Heroic Spirit but more like a Mana/Rare Prism, because in the end the players will burn them if they ever got summoned. Chief amongst these offenders include past!Siegfried (when he was still in Sumanai phase), Fionn, Stheno and Columbus (largely not because he’s useless in combat (he’s actually decent), but because his characterization repulses players so hard). Exclusively amongst players in the West, they are already planning to do this on Sieg (who is datamined) since they can’t stand him in his original show.)
  • Gachasalt . Explanation Even though “salty” is pretty popular slang in all sorts of groups, in FGO it almost always comes from the gacha, because it perfectly describes the emotion you feel when all your efforts to roll your waifu result in a bunch of 3-stars and Craft Essences.
  • “The king of the Vikings who wields a bloody axe. This is Eric Bloodaxe, the Bloodaxe King.” Explanation Eric “Bloodaxe” Haraldsson’s profile in the NA version is mocked for its redundancy.
    • Who’s that? A new Servant? Explanation Pretending to forget who Eric Bloodaxe is, as he’s a generic Horny Vikings stereotype otherwise.
  • Astolfo the haunted plush Explanation (Probably) created by dokodoki , a stock photo of the Potekoro Mascot Astolfo plush serves as a template for the homosexual-themed memes while being a cursed doll in the same time.
    • This actually started by this picture proclaiming to sell a haunted Artoria plush , which started a trend to do the same to other merchandise of characters.
  • Saber buff when? or Instinct upgrade when? Explanation A common yearning of players, especially the fans of Saber Altria to fix her Power Creep-ed status, especially for an upgrade of her Instinct skill like MHX and MHX Alter got.
  • SAVE FOR HER/HIM Explanation Used for whenever a person declares a Servant they’re saving all their Quartz for, regardless of what banner comes up beforehand.

Tsukihime and Melty Blood

  • This chair is an eyesore. Disappear!This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair. This chair! Explanation Originated from a scene in the visual novel where Shiki suddenly inverts and attacks a chair for irritating him.
  • “Isn’t it sad, Sacchin

! Explanation the opening line of Super ☆ Affection, Carnival Phantasm’s ridiculously catchy OP.

  • The song aside, the animation for the OP itself has numerous parodies using characters from other anime.
  • Don’t forget the ED — the animation for the ED ALSO has a lot of parodies using characters from other Nasuverse works.
  • “Lancer ga shinda!” “Kono hito de nashi!” Explanation “Lancer Died!” “You aren’t human!” In practically every episode poor Cú Chulainn is a Cosmic Plaything that dies every episode. The lines itself is also based upon the Japanese Dub of South Park, to be more specific the gag involving Kenny’s deaths further reinforcing his status. This can easily be snowcloned in comics whenever a Servant of other class dies hilariously, and then they replace Lancer in that phrase. Example: “Archer ga shinda!” or “Jeanne ga shinda!”
    • How to make Cú Chulainn survive: have him not be a Lancer. Explanation The first version of Cú Chulainn that appears in Fate/Grand Order is him as a Caster, and he proceeds to not only defeat every Servant he goes up against, but even survives to the end of the story arc as the “winner” of that Holy Grail War. Compare this to every other appearance Cú Chulainn has made across the franchise, in which he is a Lancer, but always ends up dying.
  • GRAIL/SEIHAI-KUN!! Explanation It tends to be easy to snowclone scenarios of Grail-kun with varying scenarios of complaining, and Grail-kun dropping a knife as a solution. Especially when there’s a Grail-kun cameo.
  • Canaan
